Visiting San Francisco Bay Area Costco – March 2015

March 2015

It was an exciting weekend.  I visited Costco in San Francisco Bay Area.  Flying from Burbank to Oakland was just about an hour.  I rarely leave my comfort zone.  It was exciting to face the unknown.

Friday: I arrived at San Francisco Bay area late evening. The first thing I noticed was that people seemed classier in San Francisco Bay Area.  We went to a fast food restaurant for a late night bite.  Young people working there were classier than what I was used to.  Later, a bunch of high-school kids walked in for Friday night fun.  It was a group of kids in mixed races.  They were all well behaved, quiet, and classy.  Throughout the weekend, I saw nothing but classy people.  People were different there.  It was strange, and I liked it.

Saturday: We took BART, a public transportation subway system, to down town San Francisco for lunch.  It was not busy because today was Saturday.  But, now I know how people in the Bay area commute to the big city every day.

I had a good, authentic Chinese food for lunch.  Then I learned that they didn’t take credit cards. Pretty much all restaurants in China Town had “Cash Only” signs.

Sunday: We went to Costco in Danville (San Francisco Bay Area).  The entire warehouse looked familiar, except they had an insane amount of coffees.  They had about twice as many coffee varieties compared to Costco in my area.  For example, at my Costco we have Peet’s coffee (Major Dickason’s Blend).  At Danville Costco, they had Peet’s Coffee AND Peet’s Coffee Organic.  Most coffees had organic versions at extra cost. 

It was cool to see San Francisco Giant “World Series Champion” hoodies.  I felt the patriotism.

I didn’t buy anything because I was flying back home in a few hours.

It was a glorious weekend I will never forget.  Good times..
